Step 7. Select Target Folder

The VM Folder step of the wizard is only available if you have chosen to perform advanced failback.

Specifying Destination VM Folder

To specify a destination VM folder, do the following:

  1. Select one or more VMs in the list and click Folder.
  2. Choose a folder to which the selected VMs must be placed.

To facilitate selection, you can use the search field at the bottom of the window: enter a folder name or a part of it and click the Start search button on the right or press [Enter] on the keyboard.

Step 7. Select Target Folder Note:

If you fail back to a VM on a standalone ESXi host not managed by vCenter Server, you cannot select a destination folder: this option will be disabled.

Restoring VM Tags

Select the Restore VM tags check box if you want to restore tags that were assigned to the original VM, and assign them to the restored VM. Veeam Backup & Replication will restore the VM with original tags if the following conditions are met:

  • The VM is restored to its original location.
  • The original VM tag is still available on the source vCenter Server.

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
